Chateau Perey Chevreuil 2011 St-Emilion is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose you can find exotic dark fruits along with cocoa and a touch of coffee bean. The palate is rich, but medium-bodied and silky. The dark fruit once again presents itself, but with a softer appeal. I'd serve this with a nice rib eye steak or roasted mushrooms.

I find the Perey Chevreuil one of those Bordeaux that despite its young age, its drinking quite nicely now. It is elegant, classic and ready to go.

Fresh aromas of plum, dark berries, and a touch of fresh ground coffee jump out of the glass, indicating it’s seriousness. A few swirls and the smells only intensify (imagine decanting it for a bit...). On the palate, the wine carries medium weight from it’s streamlined acidity and tame ABV (13%). The texture is soft and juicy, leading to a remarkably well balanced bottle for under $20 with a finish that lingers until the next sip!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
